Three-Bedroom with Beautiful Updates, Close to Great Barrington’s Downtown: $625K

  |  December 29, 2022

Today we’re at another home that’s a convenient walk to downtown Great Barrington.

This house was built in 1900 and has had smart updates while maintaining intriguing details. It sits on a knoll that’s beautifully landscaped with gardens and stonework.

The front door opens into a minimalist living room with knotty pine floors and a brick-hearthed fireplace.

The other end of the living room is a wall of built-in bookshelves and window seats under tall windows. Rustic beams frame the room.

Another beam crosses the ceiling in the dining room, which has a vintage brick fireplace that has a hearth made of cobblestones from 14th Street in New York City.

It’s also got an iron arm to cook food over the open fire, as well as a pizza/bread oven.

There’s a wide doorway off the dining room into the kitchen.

The kitchen has a pitched ceiling with twin skylights. The cabinets are pickled pine, as is the base of the center island that holds a double sink. Rustic dark wood climbs from the top of the cabinets to the ceiling.

French doors open from the kitchen out to the back patio.

The main floor has this cool bath, with a glass shower and a cobblestone floor.

Head up the staircase in the living room to the second floor.

There are three bedrooms up here. This one has newly refinished knotty-pine flooring, built-in shelves, and big windows.

This room, painted a calm blue, has darker, skinny-plank wood flooring and lots of windows.

Knotty pine makes another appearance in the primary bedroom, which also has a stunning brick fireplace with built-in shelves. The ceiling here is pitched high, with skylights to let light stream in.

All three bedrooms share this bath, which has pine floors, white walls, and a glass-walled tub/shower.

The 1,560-square-foot house is on just under a half-acre lot, with a firepit and an outbuilding that has an outdoor shower.
